Handkerchief for Daughter's Wedding Day
Godmother's Edging from Treasury of Knitting Patterns

Yarn is 2/28 cashmere from Colourmart.

Embroidery design from old heirloom sewing/shadow embroidery patterns in my collection.

Fabric repurposed linen from a ribbon embroidery project that I never finished.
Sequins and beads are bridal alterations leftovers.

Daughter has decided that she will not actually soil this hankie as then
she would have to BLOCK IT (OMG).

Wedding Veil for Daughter
Veils at the bridal salons start at well over $100, plus my daughter wants to wear her veil vertically to complement the planned french twist hairdo.

So it was decided that Mom would try to make one.

This was so easy, and cost about $10.

Two yards of 72" wide tulle folded in half, then in half again.

Cut a 36" 1/4 circle with very sharp scissors, then cut another circle 3" radius from center point.

Unfolded, pressed, folded in half, ran two rows of stitching 1/4" and 3/8" from edger of inner circle.

Tied threads at one end, pulled up bobbin threads from other end, until edge was about 3/4" long gathered.
Sewed a piece of ribbon over the rough edge.

Once we have tried the veil on with the dress I will permanently attach it and the trim with a glue gun to the comb.

This morning I posted the Hexagon Scarf pattern to my Ravelry Store.

It is priced at $2.50 and can be purchased through Paypal even if you are not a member of Ravelry. Just click the "Buy Now" button on my sidebar, this will take you to Paypal where you can purchase the pattern to download.

I had a hard time getting this to post and format correctly today, therefore....

Note to self: Do all Blogdrive editing from Internet Explorer, not from Google.
